As you can see, my article about easy blogger tricks ranks in Position 1 in Google’s SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages).

I intended to write an article about easy blogging tips, but “blogging tips” was too competitive a keyword to try to rank for on Google.

Using Google Suggest, I found the keyword phrase “blogger tricks.”

I put the keyword term into KWFinder. From the screenshot above, you can see the keyword term “blogger tricks” receives 589 searches each month and only has a KD (Keyword Difficulty) of 41.

Look at how to organize your keywords once you have your keyword options:

5 free SERP Checker toolsLooking at the screenshot, you can see the obvious keyword for this post, Mangools, is unacceptable.

“Mangools” has a keyword difficulty of 55. You can see from the screenshot, 55 is considered “hard” to rank for.

This is one of the many reasons I love KWFinder and the other Mangools tools.

Mangools does the analysis for me and saves me an awful lot of time by doing so.

What keyword or keyword phrase should I choose?

Which would you choose?

Do you see how easy making your selections become?

To facilitate your ease of analysis, the color green means easy.  Don’t forget to look in the Search column for the number of monthly searches. The higher the better, but the KD, the online competition, should be low.

Can you see your online competition by looking at this screen?


Look to the right at the Google SERP DA column.

You see my online competitors who have written about Mangools and their Domain Authority Rankings (DA). The higher, the more visibility Google is giving their article, and the stiffer the competition for me.
